Over the last few days I upgraded my system moving from an Intel Core2 E6600 system to the following:
1 x AMD HDZ965FBGMBOX 965 Phenom II X4, 3.4GHz, Quad Core , 8MB cache, 125W AM3 black edition
1 x Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P AMD770/SB700 chipset, DDR3 1600, PCI-E 2.0 x16, SATA II RAID, 8-Ch, GbE LAN, ATX
2 x GeIL GV34GB1600C9DC 4G(2G x 2) KIT DDR3 VALUE SERIES C9 1600M
1 x CoolerMaster RC-600-KKRL GLADIATOR BLACK ATX CASE W/ 500W PSU
1 x Sapphire HD5770-1G PCIE HD5770 1G 128Bit GDDR5 PCIE 2*DVI HDMI DSP 40nm DX11
I haven't had the time yet to re-install Windows 7 on this new system, but I am experiencing memory errors within Memtest with settings on SPD.
I will run through tonight and try isolate the issue to determine whether it is a DIMM slot issue or a specific RAM stick issue by testing each individually in different slots in order to find the culprit.
What I wanted to know though beforehand is whether the AM3 must run a specific memory setting for speed (1066mhz or 1333mhz or 16000mhz) as reading through an article on Tomshardware has confused me a little.
